I’ve been wanting to get into the SF comics forever and figured the Ultimate Edition Vol. 1 is the best place to start. But I’ve been having a hard time finding it. I don’t want to pay a lot of money either so the paperback version will due.
You’ll never find it. Udon is a very smart company. So to inflate the price, they released only 2,500 of the Softcover, and a limited amount of the hard cover. So on ebay, occasional auctions go up with it going for over $100 bucks. When the retail was 49.99…and amazon was 32.99.
Sarcasm man, take the sarcasm joke. And then you’ll be ok.
They actually reprinted Volume 1/2 to be harder and not magazine crap. So yeah, that’s getting reprinted…but all this manga translation is okay, but they should REALLY be reprinting the ultimate edition…I think it’s even easier to find their books in the store now too, so yep.
I mean seriously, if you are not a Street Fighter fan, don’t give a damn about buying comics, but you pick up this book that’s complete, it’s like “WOW, AWESOME” instead, Udon did the unthinkable and printed few…for those “HARD CORE” owners…
I found mine at Barnes and Noble online about a month ago. Of course, when it arrived half of issue 11 was missing along with the first four pages of issue number 12 :rolleyes: I can’t tell you how mad I was about that, but since I own the original issues I didn’t care. Even if B&N don’t have it in stock online you should try and use their store availability feature. Just put in you zip code and it’ll check the surrounding B&N stores near your area to see if they have it in stock. There’s one in stock near my area. The store might be able to physically ship it to you.
Just scored a used copy of Ultimate Edition on amazon for $45! I just typed it in for the hell of it since I was there to buy some used textbooks anyway and got mad lucky! Don’t know which cover it is though.
I think I have a good chunk of them, I’m missing atleast the first few but I can look. Just PM me and we’ll work out something I guess. I think I have the entire Darkstalkers series, and that was actually a way better comic.
I do remember seeing in one of Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalogues soliciting a reprint of the SF ULTIMATE Edition, softcover, this time with an Evil Ryu cover on black. It was supposed to have been released in January or February sometime but haven’t heard anything about it since.
Has it been released and I missed it again? Or is it late/cancelled?
